Decorating a bookshelf can sometimes feel a little intimidating if you have never done it before. Finding items to fill the empty space can seem like an overwhelming task, but styling bookshelves doesn’t have to be scary. Using these simple and easy steps allows you to ease your mind and have some fun in the process.
Step One: Find a bookshelf.
I love this one below. It’s simple, clean and modern.
Step Two: Add books.
Adding your favorite books to a shelving unit is the easiest way to dress up a shelf and show your guests your favorite authors.
Step Three: Include art prints.
Add in some art prints to in culture. Plus, they’re pretty to look at.
Step Four: Candles.
Candles on a bookshelf are a no-brainer. They are pretty and, if you choose the right scent, they can really set a mood for an entire room.
Step Five: Funky and modern turntable.
Music brings people together so adding a cool turntable to a shelving unit helps add character. Also, it’s an excuse to collect records.
Step Six: Add plants and flowers.
Adding in a little greenery is a must. It gives your shelves a fresh look and helps lift the mood in the space.
Step Seven: Add colorful vases.
Colorful vases help bring in some color and add depth the shelves.
